Attract the photography clients you want

I’ve never met a photographer that had a goal to be the cheapest. I’ve never met a photographer who wanted to get the cheapest clients. In fact, quite the opposite is true.  As I speak with photographers I hear things like: I’m not where I want to be yet, but I’m getting there.

Photo Albums: Why CDs should be scratched.

I don’t own a DVD player. True.  I’m not tech savvy or an early adopter.  I just don’t have any need for a DVD player.  My computer is a MacBook Air and does not even have a DVD slot.  My TV is equipped with all kinds of fancy stuff that gives me unlimited access toContinue reading “Photo Albums: Why CDs should be scratched.”
